Sophie has always had a strong interest in Neuro-Occupational Therapy and has gained extensive experience in the delivery of specialist rehabilitation to stroke patients who present with a multitude of complex cognitive, psychological, physical and social needs. She is able to carry out in-depth neurological assessments including the use of standardised and non-standardised assessment tools which help to guide, deliver and evaluate evidence based and client centred interventions. Sophie also brings with her past experience of working with clients who have learning disabilities and co-morbid presentations such as mental health issues, personality disorders and challenging behaviours.
Sophie’s current role is within ACM’s Community Rehabilitation Service where she provides bespoke neuro-rehabilitation to clients with brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal injury or other complex disabilities. This involves undertaking comprehensive assessments of client’s rehabilitation needs and providing personalised intervention plans based on client centred goals.
Within her role at ACM, Sophie is also able to provide personalised training packages to client’s support teams in order to assist the client to function as independently as possible and to support with the management of complex cognitive and behavioural needs.
Sophie is a client centred practitioner and feels strongly about advocating for patients’ goals and wishes. She is passionate about supporting and enabling clients to return to previous life roles and responsibilities. Alongside an extensive range of occupational therapy knowledge and skills, Sophie has a special interest in cognitive and perceptual rehabilitation including promoting independence within activities of daily living.
